Nutrition Tips

Hydration is #1

Having enough water in the body is important for exercise as it helps regulate core body temperature.
When you exercise, your body regulates this temperature by releasing water and electrolytes through the skin (sweat) and with an elevated breathing rate, you lose water through exhalation.

Being dehydrated can:

  • Make exercise seem more difficult.  
  • Hinder your body’s ability to stay cool during exercise.

Hydration Tips:

  • 4 Hours before drink 300-500 ml; 2 hours before drink 150-350 ml.
  • Have small sips of water throughout your exercise and be sure to replenish losses afterwards.
  • You can monitor your hydration status through the color of your urine – a pale yellow color indicates good hydration status.

Pre-workout FUEL

Carbohydrates are stored in our muscles and are the main source of energy during exercise. Timing of your meal or snack is critical to how well your body can use it as fuel for your workout.  

  • 1-2 hours before: a small snack or
  • 2-3 hours before: a small meal or larger snack or
  • 3-4 hours before: a balanced meal

Post-workout RECOVERY

  • Evidence shows that consuming carbohydrates within 30 minutes of completing activity helps to increase endurance capacity and performance.
  • Protein helps muscles to repair and grow after a training session.
  • Quantity and food selection should depend on the intensity of your exercise.
